Tom and Jerry is a new animated film of the classic characters, with this version being a prequel that tells the story of how the cat and mouse met and became bitter rivals.
Tom and Jerry, or as I like to call them, the poor hungry cat who people laugh at as he starves, and the mouse who’s a jerk for trying to survive, meet in Chicago (whoo, Chitown baby!) and get lost, so they must learn to work together to make it home.
In lieu of a trailer, I give you…
The film is being written by Eric Gravning (no, that’s not a typo), and doesn’t have a director attached at present. There is a rumor going around that the film will be a mashup of live action and CGI, like the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie, but at present, this is unconfirmed. Gravning is a relative unknown at present, with a few films in production, but nothing released yet.
Look at my hopes soar.
Oh NO!! My hopes jumped! They just splattered on the ground. I guess I was wrong about the whole soaring thing.
Who’s It For?
G or PG.
Movie Release Date
2011? The film doesn’t look like it’s in production yet, so it could be a while.
Who’s In It?
I hope they totally change the concept of Tom and Jerry and give them big Hollywood actor’s voices. Because no one ever liked the classic version anyways.
Tom and Jerry is where I learned where babies come from. I don’t remember how, but at some point I clearly remember Tom catching Jerry and sexing him.
Alvin and the Chipmunks, Marmaduke, Garfield.
What’s Good About It?
Animated violence between a cat and mouse. Can’t go wrong.
What’s Bad About It?
To bad it isn’t Itchy and Scratchy. Then we’d get the R rated half live action, half CGI film we’ve all been waiting for.
Our Clever Prediction
If it’s released, I could see a lot of people checking it out for the nostalgia, but it’ll probably serve to ruin childhood memories more than excite people. If they scrap the live action idea and just make it fully animated I might actually like this.
